Daily Garden: Piet’s (as in Oudolf) Office Garden

February 17, 2010

This is the office garden of famed designer (and one of my personal design inspirations)  Piet Oudolf.

As a designer, I really admire such an organized and inspiring place of work.  My studio and garden expose my constant experiments and half thought out craziness where as this seems to indicate a designer that knows what he needs at hand to get his job done.  (not that I don’t but really, this is just so organized!). To me is it so beautiful and functional and I would love to have this kind of garden at my fingertips.

    Amazing rich textures and color. Do you happen to know what those 6 rectangular pillar like structures are…maybe shaped boxwood, or vine covered concrete?

      Matti – I just looked at the image at a much bigger scale than I can upload on this site…and while I can’t tell for sure what they are, I can say with certainty that they are some sort of deciduous shrub/ tree that has been shaped to be rectangular… guess is privet….but I am not sure.

    I’m soooooooo with you on this one, Rochelle. I’ve been reading Piet a lot this winter AND musing over my office view, or lack thereof.
